-election and seemed like leaders in congress were going to be more willing to compromise, governor romney was sounding a bipartisan theme even during the election. even before, some people would argue the president has a mandate, some wouldn't, bipartisanship was what was persuading the most voters on the trail. after the election there's probably going to be more incentive to strike that note. >> or people will say romney failed with that message time to us to love to zoo lover, gummy bear aficionado and former speaker of the house newt gingrich. >> some would say romney failed by having too many messages but he hit his stride when he moved into bipartisanship. that was the message that worked for him, against the president, and what they stuck with when he eeked up on the president but didn't quite make it. >> how will the progressive wing of the president's base react to this? we know there was information from "des moines register" interview where the president talked about a grand bargain, that stoked the ire of some on the left do not play your cards on this before there is a deal cut. don't giv

on. second, it was coupled during the campaign with governor romn romney's hope of further tax breaks across the board, which is not likely to happen. don't you agree that just by itself the bucket of deductions would give congress something to hide behind because they don't have to pick and choose? they let the taxpayers choose it. as robert frank pointed out, it raises money. >> i don't think the taxpayers and people that voted in the election want congress to hide behind anything. i think we voted for a platform that wants taxes raised on high-income earners. that's what we voted for, and that's what we want. we don't want any copouts. we don't want congress to be able to hide behind anything. >> who has $25,000 in deductions anyway? >> people who have child income tax credit. it almost gets them all the way up to that $25,000. for example, students who rely on tuition credit, they wouldn't be able to do that if they were a student who had children as well. >> all right. skr justin, we got to pick on you now as well. the president feels he has a mandate. he won campaigning to do aw

the president but romney got 2% fewer votes than john mccain. by any measure a poor performance for governor romney. mccain was run fwhoog a recession. it's more about romney's failure to build on mccain's votes than obama doing anything. mr. obama won the woman vote. blacks and asians but waits the hispanic vote that really nailed romney. 71% of la teen yoz voted for the president. that is the difference in florida, virginia, colorado, nevada. other states as well. romney took white males and independents by a significant margin but when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year, american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35. it was clear left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama. big spending on federal programs did. that is the key. because many in the media would have us believe liberal ideology was confirm bid this election. it was not. however, however, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power, those americans attend religious services voted for romney 59%39%. problem is church going is on the decline. here

in the polls, was the president obama defeated governor romney among self-described moderates by 15 points. so this is an expression. because a lot of people would say president obama is the least centerleft. but it is all compared it. compared to governor romney, and i think really the republican party, including those statements that todd akin and murdoch made, it seemed like they were far off from the center. i also think, is an as an independent i can give advice to both parties -- [laughter] the party of ronald reagan and jack kemp, the party of upward mobility -- it didn't seem to be the republican party this year. maybe it was because of the very effective attack campaign against mitt romney being with bain capital, 47% and all that stuff. but i think hispanics and asians and a lot of women did not vote for the republican party, not just if you are hispanic or anti-immigrant, but because it didn't seem like a kind of party that was going to create a country in which you were going to have a chance to rise up. it seemed, by their own statement and the definition the democrats gave them,

that many miles per hours have with the federal government. governor romney battled over many things, including the food stamps. november 9, three days after the election, ohio department of job and family services announced the food stamp benefits will drop by $50 a month for 870,000 of the state's poorest citizens. starting january 1. that adds up to more than half a billion dollars out of grocery pu budget. the state appeal denied which prompted a conservative blo blogger to quip they told me if i voted for romney food stamp benefits would be cut and they were right. victoria secret annual fashion show got attention for the clothing but not the way they hoped. the native american inspired outfit floor length head dress caused outrage. navajo nation spokesman said any mockery, halloween, victoria's secret they are spitting on us and the culture. victoria's secret apologized and they edited out the segment from the broadcast. a week after the election and more than two months until inauguration day speculation is rampant who might fill the cabinet positions expected to open. some na

persuader. i think you have those two great attributes with the former president. and governor romney, he's a problem solver, he's a business person. he knows how to read a balance sheet. he knows how to make numbers balance in a good manner. i was heartened this morning on the front page of the "new york times" when senator conrad talked about he was receptive to open-minded about this capping of deductions at the higher income level. that's one way to go at it. so that was really the thought behind the piece. >> guys, did you ever have a tree stump on your lawn you just had to get rid of so you got your neighbors all together and start hacking away and finally you had to pull the damn thing out? think of mitch mcconnell as that tree stump. there he is in the way of you cutting the lawn. he shouldn't be there. he's not growing. he's not getting any better. today mitch mcconnell did not signal a big surprise he was ready to compromise. the tree stump ain't moving. let's listen. >> the time for the president to lead is now, and that means offering a concrete plan that takes into account th

president obama and governor romney. and that, to me, might even be the number one reason that under difficult circumstances the president did as well as he did. and so i think that's where we're going to be. i think we are a party, i think one of the reasons we lost in 2010 is average voters, incomes were declining, said they don't care about us. they're focused on other things. and i think we corrected that very well at both ends of pennsylvania avenue in 2012, and that accounted more than just about anything else for our electoral success. that's going to continue. i think there's going to be a relentless focus on helping the middle class grow. and if the middle class doesn't grow, it's a different america both economically and politically and even socially. >> [inaudible] specifically on how -- >> the senate returns today to begin its lame duck session. they plan to debate a bill to expand hunting and fishing on federal lands, a vote to move the measure forward is scheduled for 5:30 eastern. and off the floor this week senators hold closed-door meetings on the benghazi consulate

, and two, maybe look at the tax code, just like governor romney suggested, you look at tax code and increase revenue without increasing taxes. martha: yes, i think that that is perhaps one of the best areas that some ground might be able to be reached on. we heard from paul ryan on that, he wants to get into the issues of raising revenue. i think there is a little bit of suspicion when you talk about raising tax revenue through economic growth until that economic growth sort of starts to become evident. in terms of reforming the tax code aren't there ways to eliminate loopholes that would force the wealthy to pay more in taxes and make the whole system a little bit more efficient? >> well, i think any time you make the tax code simpler and fairer that is a good thing, if you can do that. this is one of the things we ought to be looking at. we ought to take the idea off the table that this cliff is an acceptable thing to do. divided government is a good time to solve problems, because everybody has to have their fingerprints on a real solution. if the president thinks it's going

lose the moderates? the farther right positions governor romney was forced to take in the primary to get the nomination and he was stuck with them. lost the hispanic vote by 40 points. they need to focus on some of the social issues. they need to express themselves in a way that don't alienate suburban women. we had a senate candidate who talked about rape and how if that happened it was god's will. people listen to that and thought, "he met the representatives of me." you have to look at turning at your base. elections tend to be decided in the middle. what was it about the republican message that was not as attractive to the moderates? host: could you be a candidate for president? guest: the only thing you find in the middle of the road are dead armadillos. host: 1 and holding the money for -- what are you holding the money for ? guest: i have given away a fair amount. i have kept some. i'm 56 years old. you just never know what the future holds. i love public service and wanted to keep the option open. if the option is close, i'll give away the money on a more aggressive basis.
